About From Root To Sky:
From Root to Sky is a free, climate-centered program from Youth Climate Lab (YCL) that was created to foster a sense of kinship and community among racialized and marginalized communities by promoting wellness and healing through art, storytelling, and other spiritual and land-based practices. The goal of this program is to create a safe space for young BIack, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) youth be free to express themselves while also building capacity for collective anti-racist climate action, through dialogue, networking, and learning opportunities. YCL created this program because we recognize how climate change is a symptom of historical and intersecting systemic forces at play, such as colonialism, racial capitalism, and patriarchy—the same issues that cause and perpetuate violence against the BIPOC community.
